Freddie Freeman is batting .316 this season — but as far as I’m concerned, he’s batting 1.000 in the sunflower seed department. Just look at this technique he used before Tuesday’s game against the Dodgers:
Amazing. Finally, someone is bringing the danger back to eating sunflower seeds. It’s become so safe and boring these days — eating one seed at a time has become the norm, and honestly it’s terrible. What happened to the good ol’ days when eating sunflower seeds was a risky act that could lead to choking but looked so badass no one cared — the days when the only REAL way to eat sunflower seeds was by pouring them all into your mouth at once.
According to WEEI, Tito and Sox third base coach Brian Butterfield seemingly got into it on Monday during the game but it was actually just some good old fashioned gamesmanship about none other than Tom Brady.
Butterfield loves Tom Brady and Tito loves trouble, so as the former tells it the Indians manager yelled at him “How did the X-rays come out on Brady this morning?” to try and distract him from focusing on the game at hand.
According to the Sox coach, he told Tito “You stop that. You’re not going to take me out of my game.” Which is a smart response, and shows some very Brady-esque focus to boot.
The two men know each other from events and tours in the past, so it’s not like Francona was messing with someone he barely knew or doing it just to be rude. The duo messed around later in the game as Cheap NCAA Jerseys well when they crossed paths.
This proves that even when two teams are in tight races for their respective Cheap Moto X Jerseys division leads, pressure to win doesn’t mean some good old fashioned heckling can’t happen as well.
